“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”
— Ray Bradbury
So spoke the recently departed Ray Bradbury, a seminal (possibly the seminal) American fantasy & science fiction writer. Today, aspiring sci-fi and fantasy writers study his novels and short stories as their core ed
My Photoshop Actions journal = closedWhat are Photoshop Actions?My Photoshop Actions journal = closed3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Photoshop Actions are the recordings of commands that can be applied to one or multiple images in Photoshop. When you press play, it applies these recorded commands. Think about changing the mood in a picture with various adjustment layers. Using an action can actually help you save a lot of time.
Which versions of Photoshop are lieveheersbeestje's actions compatible with?
All Photoshop CS versions, CS2 to CS6 Extended. My actions are not compatible with Photoshop Elements or other programs.
How can I download your exclusive actions?
You can download most of the actions at my DeviantART for free, it's easy and takes a few seconds. However I do have some exclusive actions as well, you need to pay with DeviantART points in order to get them. Want free points? Read more below in this journal.
30 points every week!
Every week I choose at least one artwork that used one of my actions. This artist will receive 30 points.
Photography Troubleshooting:How to Photograph FoodMany of us lament about a lack of subjects to Photograph - and almost just as many of us create something on a daily basis that with a bit of presentation, can look like a masterpiece. Food is one of the most accessible Photographic subjects and if you've no idea where to start, hopefully this article will give you a few pointers. Firstly, you don't need an expensive D-SLR in order to capture some of the food masterpieces you see around.Photography Troubleshooting:How to Photograph Food3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The above was taken with a Sony Cybershot which is a good quality point and shoot camera. As you can see, the focus is crisp, the quality is good and the lighting is adequate. It works well - and it's easy enough to achieve whether you have a D-SLR or something smaller.
Before you start cooking - get prepared. It's the simplest easiest thing to say and you'll likely roll your eyes at such a mundane instruction but there have been many times when I've found mysel

Summer Art Giveaway! (Fourth Winner drawn)Hello, everyone!Summer Art Giveaway! (Fourth Winner drawn)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Summer holidays have now officially hit and what better to do with all this free time than practice with my art? Plus, I'd like to have the opportunity to draw different types of characters..
How do I enter?
To make things easier than my last giveaway, I'm going to request that people favorite this journal instead of just leaving a comment. That way, I can use a random number generator and then use the favorite numbers to decide who the winner of the draw is! So be sure to favorite this journal and hey if you'd like you can also leave a comment
What will I be offering?
Now, here's the catch. If I do draw your name in a draw, I will note you and ask you for your request. You are allowed to request a certain character-- but I decide the format, the pose and everything else. Give me as much info as you can and I'll try to portray your character right: but there's no telling what kind of format things will be drawn in! Chibi, portrait, fullbody, halfbody..? It's

I'm quite late hopping on the discussion wagon with this one since itsfrits tells me the article has been trending for some time now. However I was eternally grateful to him for pointing me in its general direction - because what a topic!McDonalds show behind the photo-graphical scenes because a customer in Canada asked why the food looks so different in real life. If you watch the video included in the article, it's actually very insightful. And what a team they have JUST to photograph a burger. What the video does show is that everything in the photo, every ingredient you see, is exactly the sam
PE: Custom Widgets[deviantART related]PE: Custom Widgets10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
While deviants always have been able to customize their profile a bit more with the help of stamps, buttons, dividers and other fancy graphics, it is also possible to style the widgets via HTML & CSS.
But you can just work with what is already part of the deviantART website code only. You can't add new code like you would do at your journals. This means you are always limited with what you can do and don't have full control over the elements and how they appear.
The simpliest way of customizing your widgets would be by adding a background. As these can't be a pattern that get repeated on their own, the background images need to cover any possible width and height. If you do your own images you can adjust the height to what is needed, to avoid that the overall size gets too big, though.

Info Updates & Mustache CupcakesHey guys! It's been a while and I haven't been too active on dA this past month but here's the journal to keep you all updated:Info Updates & Mustache Cupcakes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been busy speeding up the schedule so I can release my next webcomic, Fisheye Placebo as soon as possible. The current release date is set to early 2013.
That means Knite had to slow down a bit since it's difficult to work on 2 projects at once. However, I still aim to update Knite ch5 beta strips around once a week. You may have noticed that in the past, I posted Knite in full chapter flash format, but I really enjoyed posting beta pages on my :iconknites: account since this allowed more audience interaction. The problem was switching between accounts was too much pain, and updating several pages a day flooded people's accounts. In the end, I decided to post strips on this account instead. The strips will only be posted once a week so if you don't want to be spoiled, just ignore the strips
In other news, I have several other so

Site Update: December 1, 2011About a month ago we announced Sta.sh and Sta.sh Writer -- not as a hot topic, but we soft-launched to the hq membership and to the more savvy deviants who follow along when we release things.Site Update: December 1, 20113 years ago in Personal More Like This
Development of both products has never stopped and will continue in an ongoing manner moving forward.
Below, I've outlined a change log that tracks recent Sta.sh progress and also identified Known Issues that we're aware of and actively working on.
You now have the option to include/exclude your journal from the Journal Portal, and from your Journal Tab's new "Featured" section.
The Journal Portal in the footer of deviantART now pulls from the Journals category but excludes all "Personal" posts. This means, you must categorize your Journal on submission for it to even qualify to appear in the footer of dA. This has substantially increased the quality of posts that appear there.

what happened to zuko's mother?Dark Horse continued to up the "Avatar" ante with its graphic novel series "The Promise," which helps fill in the gap between the end of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "Legend of Korra." Written by "American Born Chinese" creator Gene Luen Yang with art by Gurihiru Studios, the three-part graphic novel series wraps in September -- but that doesn't mean it's the end of Avatar Aang's adventures.what happened to zuko's mother?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This weekend at the American Library Association, Dark Horse announced Yang and Gurihiru will return for a second "Avatar: The Last Airbender" graphic novel series called "The Search," which explores the biggest unsolved mystery in "Avatar" lore: what happened to Prince Zuko's mother?
CBR News spoke with Yang, a longtime "Avatar: The Last Airbender" fan, about his work on "The Search," wrapping up "The Promise, his feelings about "Legend of Korra," the challenge of linking the two shows and their characters together and the return of Princess Azula.
